Quality of health care and patient satisfaction in liver disease: the development and preliminary results of the QUOTE-Liver questionnaire.
BMC Gastroenterology, 8, . (doi:10.1186/1471-230X-8-25). (PMID:10501602).
The QUOTE-Liver is an easy to complete instrument based on standardized state-of-the-art satisfaction measurement methodology. Preliminary evidence for its validity and reliability was demonstrated. The QUOTE-liver covers those aspects of satisfaction that CLD patients consider to be important when visiting the outpatient department of hepatology. Even though further substantiating of the favourable psychometric findings is desirable, it seems to be a useful instrument that can be used to identify those aspects of care that need improvement in order to optimise the provision of health care for patients with chronic liver disease.
